Rural Youth Europe made two videos in 2011 to celebrate the European Year of Volunteering. The longer video is about volunteering and what it means for young people living in rural areas. Four people were interviewed about doing voluntary work in their local community and their international volunteering experiences with Rural Youth Europe.
The aim of the video project was to promote rural youth work and the benefits of volunteering for rural young people.
The video was filmed at Rural Youth Europe events in 2011 including "Spice Up Your Potential!" in Strasbourg, France, "Be active – get better opportunities in life through volunteering!" in Ruse, Slovenia, and "Spice Up Your Community!" in Mollina, Spain. Interviews were also filmed in Jäneda, Estonia and Helsinki, Finland.
We'd like to give special thanks to the four people who were interviewed for this video:
Liga Ketlere, Latvia
Elin Egeland Roda, Norway
Anton Fitzthum, Austria
Mikko Välitalo, Finland
We'd also like to thank the following people for their help in making the video:
Ragnar Kekkonen, Estonia
Ales Plut, Slovenia,
Bob Dronfield, England
Kashi Gauli, Finland
The video project was supported by a grant from the European Youth Foundation (EYF).
